We have been telling DS that if he wants a baby brohter or sister that he needs to start using potty ALL OF THE TIME. DH even told him at one point he'd bring the crib back down bc babies pee in their pants. Tonight DS came up to me and told me to go upstairs and get the crib down bc he wanted a baby brother and sister. and he told me he'd help bring it down. When is hte best time to tell the little ones? we are thinking of telling my parents/brothers next weekend bc we will need mom to watch DS on a day I'm off and I have no good excuse for why. AND we thought about telling DH's parents/ brothers the beginning of Nov (when the family is together. ) I don't want to tell DS and then ahve something happen, but at the same time once family knows he's going to hear it. I have no history of m/c and I do not think anyone in our family has had any, but I also know it can happen to anyone.
SO For those that are not 2nd times moms.... when is the best time to tell the little ones?
